    OMTech Laser opinions wanted

    So I have had a little K40 for years, I've done several modification to it and it works pretty good. I'll link a couple of videos of it. I've made a lot of good quality cool items with it !

    But now I'm looking for a larger machine, I was thinking about the Boss LS1420 50 watt at around $4500+

    but then started looking at the OMTech MF2028-60 at about $2800 seen here: https://www.amazon.com/Orion-Motor-T...854038&sr=8-27

    I would like to get some opinions on this machine and company please, would I be wasting my money by going with the OMTech or is this a decent machine ? I can easily fix almost any quality control issues, such as tightening and aligning, replace electronics, motors, etc.

    Or should I just pay more for the Boss Laser with smaller cutting area and 50 watt tube ?

    Any info on this is appreciated.

    A couple of videos from my little K40...

    Re: OMTech Laser opinions wanted

    I’m looking at those same Omtech machines, the 80-100w range. What little I’ve learned is that Omtech seems to be the only ChiCom company that has a presence here in the US that offers a small modicum of support for what they sell. There is more info over on Reddit, try r/ChineseLaserCutters or r/Laserengraving.
